2005 fnra eclipse ii

Hello, I bought a brand new fnra eclipse ii in 2005. Its still in the original box with all the original paperwork and lock. It has never been fired(except by kimber). I was wondering what this would be worth? Any info would be helpful. Thanks

FNRA doesn't increase the value of the gun, IMO. It's not rare enough to be a collector's item.

Check gunbroker.com to see what a used Eclipse goes for.

That doesn't seem fair. They only made 1024 of them

With all due respect sir, life isn't fair. Unless you find someone that really wants that gun it has no collector value.

We had a local drawing with the GerogiaCarry.Org group for a really nice Kimber with all the engraving on the slide and custom grips. It was really pretty. I'd love to have it, but if the lady in our group who won it decided to sell it, I would not give her more than a standard model Kimber is worth. Sorry, but engravings and grips don't really add any value to a gun. Good luck. Hope you find 'that guy' who is willing to pay more.

Sorry your Kimber isn't a highly sought after collectors item, but welcome to the forum. We are a highly sought after bunch!

The guys are right. FNRA guns have no more value than any other gun. Shoot it and enjoy it.

I am a big FNRA supporter, and have a couple FNRA guns, but they are no more valuable than any other Kimber.
